Bay Area braces for stormy weather

Tuesday is expected to be cold and wet across the Bay Area, as a cold front and the remnants of a typhoon mix, creating a stormy combination.

It is likely that Tuesday morning’s commute will be “ugly with a capital U,” a National Weather Service forecaster said.

The storm was forecast to roll into the region overnight, forecaster Diana Henderson said.

She said the region will likely see 3-5 inches of rain in hilly areas and 1-3 inches of rain along the coast and in inland valleys. Last year there was 0.35 inches of rain in October.

Rainfall should taper off Wednesday, Henderson said.

While the storm will be short-lived, The City isn’t taking any chances. The Department of Public Works is encouraging residents to be prepared for the Bay Area’s first storm of the year. Free sandbags to protect from flooding are available to residents at the DPW’s operations yard at 2323 Cesar Chavez Blvd., the agency said in a release.
